    Creating OS template cache for centos-6-x86_64 template
    Error: URL $CUST_VAR/linux/centos/6/os/x86_64 contents undefined variable
            You can define this variable in /etc/vztt/
            See Virtuozzo Templates Management Guide for more details. 


The variable $CUST_VAR is not defined in configuration file /vz/template/conf/vztt/ (which /etc/vztt/ is linked to).

When Virtuozzo creates a cache, it substitutes the variables from /vz/template/conf/vztt/ to /vz/template/centos/6/x86_64/config/os/default/repositories and /vz/template/centos/6/x86_64/config/os/default/mirrorlist. In case required variable is undefined, the operation fails.


(Re)Define the variable $CUST_VAR in /vz/template/conf/vztt/
